I know it's trivial but I'm not sure how to interpret this sentence. is my professor Sam also my father or are they to different people?
I interpret it as different people: My father and (also) my professor Sam, as in "My father and my professor Sam are going fishing together."
it is not meant to be a sentence, think of it as a phrase
Hey how can we say my professor and my father is sam?
That is confusing even in English. You mean that as in: Sam would be both my father and my professor?
I think because no other names are given I would assume they're the same person? I guess in this one context is key.
how would you say, "my father and my professor is Sam?"
why can't it be "my father and my professor is Sam"???
It should be "my father and professor sam" in English, that's the proper way. "My" shouldn't be repeated in english.
I translated it as "my dad and professor is Sam". Still not sure if that's a correct interpretation or not
Why can't we write teacher instead of professor
I can put Sam at the beginning or the end of the sentence.
